In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18
God calls you to a life of thankfulness. Taking a few moments every day to review the blessings God has given you can transform your outlook and your attitude.
You can be thankful for friends, family, health, and prosperity. Even if you are going through a difficult time, you can still be thankful.
You are Blessed
Compared to many places and people in the world, you are extremely blessed of God. If you have a roof over your head and food in the pantry, you are doing better than much of the world. According to World Vision, 815,000,000 people will go to bed hungry tonight. Almost half the world’s population survives on less than $2.50 a day.
We all have much to be thankful for.
God calls each of us to a life of thankfulness. A thankful person is a humble person. A proud person will never be a thankful person.
When you walk in thankfulness, you confess that God is the source of all you have. When you are thankful, you humble yourself by confessing; it’s not all about you.
Thankful In, Not For
God calls you to give thanks in everything. Giving thanks in everything is not giving thanks for everything. It’s hard to be thankful for a flat tire, a bad doctor’s report, or a difficult marriage.
However, you can give thanks in those situations because you know God is in control of your life.
You can be thankful that He is working for your good and that He will never forsake you.
You can be thankful for what God is going to do in this challenging situation.
A Thankful Attitude
Thankfulness is an attitude. It is confessing that all you have and all you are comes from the Lord.
Giving thanks is a confession that God is good, and He takes care of His children.
Look at that promise again.
In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. – 1 Thessalonians 5:18
Make these confessions.
I thank God for pouring out His blessings on me.
I will spend a few moments every day expressing my thankfulness.
God is the source of all I need.
I thank God in every situation because I know He is working for my good.
In Jesus name,
Today, you can be thankful because you know God is working in your life as your protector and provider.
